notmovingpictures Episode 044: Should I Stay Or Should I Go

So this is the kind of an episode where I ramble on about how I've been trying to schedule a vacation in Peru and the thoughts or doubts I have about getting a medical scan to see if I may have a potentially bad (or not) medical condition and how all of the waiting makes me think about life. You can hear how all of this ties together and affects each other. Then I delve into the Peruvian Presidential election and our very own election here in the U.S. Lastly I discuss some zine projects that I need to get done before I go to Peru and some reviews I am doing for Zine Nation.

Extra points for you if you get the connection to the closing song and one of the themes for this episode.



Opening Music: Alloy - Live To See The Day
Closing Music: The Black Black - The Plan Is There Is No Plan

The Waiting Game

Waiting sucks. Not matter what it is you are waiting for the eternal truth is that waiting sucks. What I'm waiting for right now is for the three hours necessary for my DAT Scan to begin to pass. I'm in a hospital I've never been in before, in a city I'm unfamiliar with, by myself, as I wait. Perfect scenario right? I've had my solution to drink and the tracker injected but then three hours must pass before the scan can begin. I'm not always the most patient of people so waiting for this time to pass sucks.

If you're wondering what this DAT Scan is for well, where do I start? My older sister has Parkinson's Disease so when I was describing to her how I sometimes had a bit of shaking in my hands she advised me to get it checked out, not much later as I tend to do things, but now. So I got a referral to a Neurologist who assured me that I only had Essential Tremors which is nothing to worry about. Relieved I called her to let her know, only to find out that was exactly what she had been told as well. Only she didn't have Essential Tremors, she had Parkinson's.

Luckily there was a movement specialist in Tulsa and I was able to get in to see him for a second opinion, after waiting about four months that is. Unlike the neurologist he wasn't willing to write off what I have as Essential Tremors. It might be, then again it might not be. Turns out there are a lot of possibilities. So the movement specialist got this DAT Scan thing setup which will tell me definitively if it is Essential Tremors. If it isn't then.....well, we'll cross that bridge if and when we come to it.

It's been over eight months since this whole ordeal started. One wait after another. A little more time to pass and then the scan will be over. Then some more waiting to hear the results. After that I have no idea what will happen. If I'm being honest (and why shouldn't I be) Parkinson's scares the crap out of me. There are so many ideas and stories and things swirling around in my brain and the thought that I could have something that would slowly take away my ability to write or type or somehow bring these stories to life, is terrifying.

I haven't taken advantage of the time I've had in my life to do these things as I feel driven to do. If it's typical to wait until you have a scare or a close call or some kind of worry to get off your butt and actually do those things you've always wanted to do, then I guess that describes me to a T. I'm a very good procrastinator but if I continue to put things off 'til later then eventually there will no longer be a later. I only hope that's not the case and I do have more time it let it all out. We'll see.

Ten For Tuesday Episode 100: Yeah, It's 100

For episode 100 I'm doing nothing special, just continuing to bring you ten great songs. Most of these are recent songs from artists that were around in the late 70s to early 80s. Most but not all. The rest just sound like they were influenced by them. All in all this is a great episode in my humble opinion. Deal with it.



Rhoda Dakar and Nick Welsh - Let Me Go
The Beat feat. Ranking Roger - Walking On The Wrong Side
The Selecter - It Never Worked Out
Bruce Foxton (From The Jam) - Smash The Clock
Paul Weller - Wake Up The Nation
3 Men + Black - That's Entertainment
Hugh Cornwell - Please Don't Put Me On A Slow Boat To Trowbridge
We Were Promised Jetpacks - Quiet Little Voices
The Twilight Sad - Last January
FM - Allan Poe

New Song By Stationary Nomads - A Mind Is A Terrible Thing



I have a new song uploaded at bandcamp called A Mind Is A Terrible Thing which you can download for free or just stream it. It's a spoken word style vocal delivery and I had the idea for at least the last few years. Aaron had sent me some songs he had already recorded and one night as I listened to them over and over and over I realized that one had the perfect tempo and tone for my idea. I knew I had to bust my butt to come up with the words that would match the music. Thus did "A Mind" move from idea to reality.

If you're wondering how I first thought about this strange subject, well, there used to be a show called In Living Color that ran in the early 90s. It was where Jim Carrey, Jamie Foxx, Damon Wayans and many others became very well known for their comedy. Daman Wayans had a character that would talk gibberish and it always seemed like he was making fun of people who would use big multi-syllabic words (see what I did there?) without actually knowing what they meant or how to properly use them in a ssentence.

I in turn thought it would make an interesting idea for someone to sing gibberish strung together for no good reason. So I did and now you can hear it. Ain't life grand?
